I spent one night in Korea Garen Lodge after arriving in Lilongwe and before travelling up North. I had a double Gold room and paid $66 for the privilage. They arrange a taxi to pick you up at the airport (which is great if you don't know Malawi!) but I later found out that I was definately charged more than I would have been had I arrange this myself.
On arrival the receptionish insisted that I payed in dollars rather than kwacha, which I thought was odd but no biggie really! The room was basic but clean and the bathroom definately needs updating as it's a little shoddy. In the evening the music and voices from the bar/restaurant area were really very audible from my room which was annoying as I really only was there to get some sleep!
Food in the restaurant was fine, I was alone and the staff were friendly to chat to whilst I was waiting. I appreciated the visiting cat at the table much less!
On a whole, slightly over preiced for what you get. I'm not a fussy traveller but I would never like to try a room below gold standard and when I was travelling back through Lilongwe I chose to stay elsewhere.
